Bell's Swastika Laundry[edit]

As I recall, the laundry merged with dry-cleaners called Bells at some point and, in the early 1960s, the vans carried symbols of both companies. Anybody got definitive information on this? JXM 23:35, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

I don't remember and cannot find anything online on Bell's. Keep looking. ww2censor 02:22, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
I distinctly remember seeing a Swastica Laundry shop window in 1976, probably somewhere south of the city center (I remember seeing it as I rode buses from Dun Laoghaire). Did they have such outlets or was it an independent laundry sprung up after the original company closed? According to this, the co. closed in 1987 which matches my memories. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spamhog (talkcontribs) 13:29, 1 May 2012 (UTC)


Is this really notable at all? I say not. ΤΕΡΡΑΣΙΔΙΩΣ(Ταλκ) 07:33, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Colour of swastika[edit]

I have just carried out a general overhaul of this article. One of the changes I have made is to the claim that the vans bore a black swastika on a white background: I have reversed that to white-on-black, on the evidence of the two colour and three black-and-white photos included in the "Come here to me!" article (all of which which definitely show a white swastika, though the background could possibly be a dark red). It's possible that black-on-white was also used, but the only source provided was the photo in the "Electric/Battery Powered Vehicles" article, which, as the article explains, is of a repainted Dartry van, mocked up for a TV series: some better evidence is needed if this is to go back in.
